Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been tracing my family tree just about all my life. I got seriously interested about 15 yrs. ago when my dad and I would talk for hours about his family, the Hunters. Since then I have met many cousins online and have become reacquainted with other family members of the Hunter, Norwood, and Carroll line from NC. I have traveled to Raleigh, NC, to the state archives, the cemeteries around Raleigh, Smithfield and Archer's Lodge photographing info to add to the family tree. I am a direct descendant of tavern owner, Isaac Hunter, of Raleigh.

Unlike some other gravers, if you want me to transfer a memorial of a friend or family member just ask and I will happy to do so. When requesting a photo, PLEASE contact the cemetery office and ask for the location. They will give you the name of the section and the plot number. These are not MY memorials; they are here for you. I don't care anything about the number of memorials/photos I have racked up. I hope that some of you that realize a loved one has no marker will somehow provide one for that person so that they will always be remembered.

Also, perhaps you can find his wife Clarice? She may be buried there also.

Thanks for confirming the burial location for me. And I look forward to the photo (thanks in advance)!

As a note, "Phoenix" is the spelling used in the obituary. I added a note, to clarify the spelling of Phenix, below the transcribed obituary.

RE: Osie Jr.
I checked with the office and they told me Osie Jr. was in Masonic Garden, Lot 33B, Space 1. If there's no individual marker, I think the best thing would be to either have no photo, or to have a photo of the entire plot.

RE: Alice Hawkins
She had her maiden name when she passed so I assume she didn't marry. Osie, Jr. never married. He was my main interest.

I assumed she would be buried with the rest of the family, but I can check. Thanks.

RE: Osie Hawkins Jr.
Hi. I tried, but I only have the option of deleting the photos I myself uploaded. I can only sort the order all of the photos. I think you are the only one who can delete the photos you uploaded. Thanks!

Osie Hawkins Jr.
Although I appreciate the photos, there is a problem. You put your photos of Osie, Sr. on the memorial for the son, Osie, Jr. I would be grateful if you would remove them so that you or someone else can put photos of the right grave.

Thank you.

All the best,
